Solid Ground Movement presents - Level Up! The Final Cut
After the successful Master Project Fix It, the Amsterdam Hip Hop development platform Solid Ground Movement has already started the new Master project: Level Up! On the 17th of November the participating dance crews will compete with each other in The Final Cut to secure a place in a Triple Bill Theatre tour throughout the Netherlands.
WHEN: 17 Nov, 20:00
WHERE: Dansmakers Amsterdam
The Master project is not only intended to offer a stage to young dancers, but also to teach them how to create a good theatre show. This year Solid Ground Movement is working with experienced coaches from the dance scene: Alida Dors (BackBone), Shailesh Bahoran (IRC), Marco Gerris (ISH), Lloyd Marengo (LloydsCompany) and André "Drosha" Grekhov (world title Juste Debout 2012). On the 8th of September the crews already proved themselves at the Challenge Day, where they had to conduct a 5-minute choreography on the spot. After this presentation, they received valuable feedback from the coaches. On the 17th of November the crews must show what they have done with this feedback in a brand new choreography. The three winning crews will receive artistic guidance from the coaches and a dramaturge for their theatre tour. In addition, they receive a ligh plan and more than € 10,000 to create an awesome show.
The coaches have linked the following themes to the crews:
UNDERDOGZ - Habbits
Project Sedap - Psychoses
Heavy Hitters - Obsession
Anza Movement - Rituals
Xgen - Conversations
Bakabirtieboyzz – Oppression
During this nerve-racking final you’ll already get a great first impression of the talent that will feature in the big theatre tour through the Netherlands. The premiere of the Triple Bill will be at Theatre Bellevue on the 7th of May.
